I'd take a chance on Sean Day.  


His stock has dropped a lot since he was declared "exceptional" by the OHL at 15 but I think he's worth the risk.

Because every source out there gives different stats. The average size of the NHL is listed at different sizes on evey different site. Most list a heavier weight than 201. That was one source. It also goes up/down every year. There is no set number.


As for Sharpe I quoted what was up at the time. he went for 34 goals with the B hawks, then 16 goals, then 17-stats not updated yet.


The point remains that Sharpe is in major decline. His last 4 seasons were: 6 goals, 34 goals, 16 goals, got traded, then 20 goals. That is decline. Bowman was smart to  move him and his large contract. Somehting Holland needs to do but will not.


Sooo you just made up a number? lol

Hold on Hold on.


We are 11 (ELEVEN) years removed from the Salary cap being institutied.

We are 5 years removed from Rafalski retiring. 

We are 4 years removed from Suter signing with the Wild. 


Are people seriously still trying to throw up these excuses?  That's pathetic.  If you can't adjust to something in 4 years you failed.  Period.  Let alone 11 years.  That's a joke. 


We haven't realistically competed for a cup since 09.  That's now SEVEN YEARS.  Expecting a team to compete for a cup once in 7 years is not asking too much nor does it make us "spoiled fans".  You want to know what fan base is happy just making the playoffs?  The Maple Leaves.  Is that who you want to be?


You obviously have a ridiculous idea of what "adjusting" means...lol

In Topic: Official - Little Caesars Arena

Nope. The LED roof no longer happening has never been stated. As far as we all know, that is still happening and the roof can display whatever they want it to at any given time. 


In this video they state otherwise unfortunately.



In regards to the Little Ceasars symbol on the roof:


"That will probably be permanent but the jewel itself, the part the wraps around the rink, will change colour."
